Here’s the situation. I record my singer, let’s say singing a chorus. We take 4 loop recordings then hit stop. If I start recording again to add more loops it creates a new separate event but what I want is it to just add lanes to the previous takes. How do I do this? I have the recording mode set to Merge but it doesn’t merge with what was previously there. If anyone knows how to do this I would be so grateful. I don’t see anything in the manual that is glaringly obvious on how to do this.
One other question… let’s say I have a take with 5 loops in it and I do Events to Part. One of the loops let’s say he messed up right in the beginning of loop 3 so we chatted in between the loop. It’s a useless part so I delete that lane, but what Cubase does is leave an empty lane. I would like it to move the below lanes up into the deleted lane’s place since it makes for easier viewing/editing. If I try to manually drag the lane up it always moves off timing and I’d have to sit there and align it precisely which obviously is a PITA. Is there any way to remove a lane entirely so there is no empty space left and have Cubase basically just show the lanes with recording data?
FYI, I do all my editing in the Audio Part Editor rather than the lane view thingy in the main window.
OK, I must be a total retard or something. I don’t know why I had an issue when recording my singer this past weekend but I just tested now and if I start recording again, then after do an Events to Part, all the takes are listed nicely together. Maybe I did Events to Part first then later tried to add? I dunno, either way it seems like user error. Also, I tested moving the lanes and the reason I had an issue prior was because I had Snap turned off. So, I’m all set. Mod’s please feel free to delete my thread of idiocy lol.
You’re doing OK. Only took you 40 minutes to do it yourself. It’s a good lesson that the forum is a quick help resource rather than for more serious stuff and mostly things can be resolved fairly quickly with a little thought and diligence.
Sound on Sound has a couple of good articles at the moment about the new comping.
And also, someone here mentioned in a recent post: To bring an independent audio TRACK into a lane system, first drag the track onto the target TRACK to get it in the lanes - then drag it to the target LANE.
